New Releases: June 5
Turbulence (A Stone Barrington Novel) by Stuart Woods
Stone Barrington is back. This time, he's up against man and nature. When hurricane-force winds deposit a politician on Stone's doorstep, which is just far-fetched enough that I'm buying, he thinks it'll be the last he sees of the man. Nope. Not a chance. There's danger afoot. And only Stone can save that day. Or can he? You'll have to read it to find out.
Woods, a prolific mystery writer, has churned out almost as many suspense novels as James Patterson. It's mostly that he focuses just on suspense where as JP knows no bounds.
Okay, this book isn't technically new this week, but it's newish. And it's absolute BALONEY that only seven people have reviewed this book. BALONEY!
What's Jimmy Pat Up To?:
The President is Missing by James Patterson and Bill Clinton
What happens when a cyber security threat, espionage, and a traitor in the Cabinet collide? I don't know, but we'll probably all know pretty soon. Is this real life or is this just fantasy?
Anyway, this suspense novel, with some insight from a former Commander-in-Chief, attempts to answer what happens when the country is at risk and the president goes missing.
Pick of the Week:
Heartache Along the Cannonball by Ronald Pollworth
**Shameless self-promotion alert**
Our pick of the week is Fort Smith's very own Ron Pollworth. A historical fiction set during the westward expansion, Heartache Along the Cannonball is the *almost* true story of Ron's great-uncle, Charlie Adams. Based in part on diaries left behind by Charlie, with a few blank spots filled in by Ron, we follow Charlie as he is forced to leave his first love and the only life he's ever known for the rugged land of North Dakota.
This book would make the perfect Father's Day gift for any western fan. Be sure to come get your copy signed this Saturday at Chapters on Main in Van Buren. We'll be there, along with Ron, from 12:00-2:00.
